Unit seems to reject certain zip codes - often "rounds off" area codes eg. 90214 to 90210

The RoadMate 2045 is a global positioning system receiver from Magellan that offers a step-down from the company's RoadMate 3045 models. Featuring a 4.3-inch color touchscreen display, this model includes lifetime traffic updates with automatic re-routing to avoid potential accidents, construction and other road-blocks. Route customization is also available for selection of multiple navigational paths based on time, distance, fuel consumption and freeway involvement for optimal user convenience. The "OneTouch" favorites menu provides further customization of a given user's most utilized functions, including the AAA-approved "TourBook" that is equipped with over 6-million Points Of Interest throughout North America. Highway lane assist takes the guesswork out of a street and freeway maneuvering, using arrowed illustrations to designate precisely which areas must be used. Voice-prompted street names and directions are included, alongside the "QuickSpell" predictive address entry function. The 2045 also features AAA's "Member Roadside Assistance" service, which can instantly transfer a given location with exact latitude and longitude co-ordinates for the fastest possible servicing.
